Processing... is Michael Dzjaparidze. A 25 year old student of Musictechnology and Sounddesign at the Utrecht School for the Arts in Hilversum, The Netherlands.
Processing... is about approaching sound and soundobjects in original and unconvential ways. The one time this is achieved by the use of synthetic generated sounds, but just as easily by manipulating and processing existing sounds in interesting ways. These can range from fieldrecordings to instrument tones and speech. Experimentation, improvisation, minimalism and transformation are the keywords.
The tracks for this release are based on a deeper understanding of how to create organic, natural sounding scapes purely using FM synthesis. FM is a relatively easy but nonetheless powerfull technique perfect suited for creating rich sounding timbres. Though, when used without care the result can sound very harsh and unnatural. The goal here was to try to create rich evolving textures, which retained a natural, organic feel to it.
